A Psychiatrist, Sex Therapist, Author & Motivational Speaker, Dr Vaishnav is a visionary in the field of psychiatry since 40 years & among the pioneers to propagate healthy mental health. He has travelled the journey from being MBBS Student at B J Medical college in 1973 to MD in psychiatry in 1981.
Being inspired by ever energetic and youthful father late Dharnidharprasad & Enthusiastic and golden hearted mother Pramodaben, Dr. Vaishnav was achieving one after other milestones in his life. In his twenties he came across a motivational quote hence for the past 39 years he had looked in the mirror every morning and asked himself, “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I’m about to do today.” The answer was No and he realised that he needs to Change himself.
Hence rather than remaining only practicing psychiatrist he went to remote places & Rural India for Mental Health & Sexual health awareness. On several occasions I exposed inhuman healing practices.
